Oldman Leaves "Star Wars"
Outsiders - September 19, 2004

The IMDB reports that Gary Oldman has pulled out of the next "Star Wars" movie because he refuses to work overseas illegally.

The "Harry Potter" star had agreed to voice the evil CG robot Jedi knight killer General Grievous in the upcoming "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge Of The Sith", but recently quit the production because it was made outside the Screen Actor's Guild rules.

Oldman's spokesman explained - "Gary was excited and looking forward to working on the film. The snag is that the movie is being made without members of the Screen Actor's Guild. It means Gary would have been working illegally overseas. Out of respect and solidarity with the other members, he could not and would not consider violating the rules of his union".

No word as yet on a potential replacement.
